My dear friend Casey gave me this beautiful paper pieced art for my birthday. The piece is from Nicaragua, it is created with pieces of colored corn husks.  Casey wrote me a beautiful letter.  To thank my close friend for this amazingly thoughtful gift, I recreated the painting with bits of paper.

I began my project by making the patchwork piece.  Then I cut the crane using the Cricut Pagoda cartridge.  Then I rect the crane in pink, cut it up and pieced it on the bird.  I used Mojo Monday sketch 490.  I finished the piece off with a beautiful bow using Vanilla Cream from the Creamy Dreamy Bundle by DL.ART.  This creamy ribbon is gorgeous.  Diana gives my readers a 10% disount-just use the code K34510 at check out
